[GreenYes] Wanted: City-sized Environmental Management System

Hello Fellow GreenYes'ers,

I am writing on behalf of the City of Redmond, Washington, home to a 
software giant, a passion for biking, and other charming attributes.

The City's Natural Resources Division is undertaking a pilot to 
improve the City's overall environmental footprint.  Toward this 
effort, they are trying to identify environmental management systems 
that can be borrowed from to assemble a meaningful guidance and 
evaluation structure for the City's resource conservation efforts.

The ISO 14000 series, for example, is generally applied to 
businesses.  Certainly it could be applied to a City.  Are you aware 
of any instances of a City using ISO -- or any other environmental 
management system -- to assess its operations, purchases, effluences, 
etc?  Likewise for Natural Step, etc.

On behalf of the City of Redmond, thanks for any insight you can share into:

1) Cities that have adopted or implemented a management system approach, and

2) management systems or structures that might help inform the City's 
new process.

As always, thanks for your valuable time and effort.
